The Palau National Communications Corporation (PNCC) reports that, over the past several years, the Micronesian nation's entire telecommunications system has been in the process of being rebuilt, at a cost of $39.1-million (U.S.).

Completed projects include the installation of 104 miles of underground copper and fiber cable. The new Palau facilities provide telephone, on-line computer, and other contemporary telecommunications services to homes and businesses in the capital city of Koror and the adjacent state of Airai.

Undersea fiber cable, totaling 124 miles, now links the capital to all of the big island of Babeldaob, bringing services to some 1,000 additional families.

The more remote Palau islands will be connected to the national telecommunications system via microwave.
